of perspective right now. just this morning on "meet the press," president obama essentially was blaming republicans for the inability to move anything and speaker boehner, a couple hours later took to twitter to blame the president for not urging the senate to pass a bill that the house passed, but that bill wouldn't pass the democratic led senate anyway. when the two lead negotiators in the whole process, speaker boehner and president obama with two days to go are still in blame game mode, we are very unlikely to get something done in the last 48 hours. >> jimmy, let me bring you in on the next topic. robert hinted at it. this should be a win. it should be about the american people getting a win here. winners andlosers. it is politics. what about the president here? is he going to have a tough sengd term if he has to take this same battle into next year and be dealing with this. he talked this morning he wanted to take on immigration control and gun control and energy. those things can't get done if he has to go into this major battle again. >> i like looking back at when bill clinton
